PlayStation’s biggest chancers: Ten characters making lemonade from life’s rotting lemon pile


Nathan Drake – Uncharted

Probably PlayStation’s most identifiable chancer, Uncharted‘s Nathan Drake has made an entire career out of nearly being killed over and over again in the pursuit of epic loot. That Drake has survived long enough to complete an entire Uncharted trilogy and a Vita spin-off is surely testament to some larcenous higher power – every ladder he climbs breaks apart, every vehicle crashes and explodes and no matter how many exotic locales he jets off to explore, he’s always beaten to the punch by gangs of armed villains so desperate for blood they think nothing of chasing him over rooftops for the chance to knock the next cocksure quip right out of his mouth.
